The Headwaters Groundwater Conservation District announced Wednesday that it will return to Stage 3 Water Conservation measures effective immediately after operating at Stage 4 since early August.
The City of Kerrville moved to Stage 4 measures on August 24 and capitalized on the reduction in water demand to perform maintenance on two groundwater wells and one ASR well. This particular type of work is usually done in the winter months, but due to the drop in water demand the work has been accelerated. After pulling two of the pumps and inspecting the column pipe, it was determined that a new column pipe and pumps were needed. The city is currently working with a pump supply to secure the required materials. Because that maintenance has not yet been completed, the city will remain in Stage 4 until a satisfactory solution has been implemented in the next few weeks.
